    A terrific exploration of friendship, marriage and betrayal in the theatre. Fantastic!

    "One Month Along" by Franky Gonzalez is much more than a loving homage to Pinter's "Betrayal". His characters have layers of past damage, mingled with self-reflection, that help you care about their choices and missteps from the very first scene (which is the end of their story chronologically). Funny, sad, poetic and thoughtful, "One Month Along" makes you wish it would start over again as soon as it ends, so you can take it all in one more time, knowing how it all began.

    Reading like a modern-day response to Pinter's "Betrayal," this play shares that play's pointed use of economic yet potent language to explore issues of love, trust, sex, abandonment, neglect, and passion among three artists. On a deeper level, there is a rumbling of "What if?" underneath the surface of these characters and their situation, which adds quite a melancholy and poignant feel to the proceedings. A fascinating read!
